Mortal Kombat (PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360)

Amazing screenplay and controls sometimes provide an unputdownable effect to a game that gains the proportion of a legacy which lasts forever! Mortal Kombat undoubtedly has managed to succeed in these departments that and thanks to makers, the game has gained an unfathomable depth that can only be compared with a classic. Dazzling screens coupled with some state-of-the-art controls is the real catch of the game and a rock solid storyline only adds to the gizmo, that you only expect from developers like NetherRealm Studios. In a nutshell, Mortal Kombat is something that will keep you glued to the screen – at least I was and I bet thing will not be different for you guys!

The game is basically combo-based with the four DLC characters maneuvered by the hand-held tower driven consoles and the deadly pace of the game adds the already high difficulty level that only a seasoned gamer can take care of. Truly, it’s not a game for the beginners.

The game is about a deadly combat and some bloody encounters between the characters each hell-bent to pit apart the other with an extreme sense of rancor. The controls of the game are simply great and the touchscreen element has given an extra tinge that only enhances the smoothness of the cut scenes. Some newer elements added include directional swipes that take the place of D-pad usage and face-buttons making way to touchscreen.

The new bonus challenge tower features two modes that have never been used before – TYS (Test Your Slice) and TYB (Test Your Balance). While the former one is a mini game of the genere of Fruit Ninja where you can slash along the touchscreen ripping the characters apart to collect points, the later one asks you to tilt your gadget to maneuver and balance the characters and is obviously more challenging. That’s why the one with more gaming skill will excel and the ones without it will find the game extremely irritating to start with.

The game is highly addictive and one thing is true about the game – even if you are a starter, the more you will fail the more you will get infuriated and that will make you more stubborn to succeed. And if you are a seasoned campaigner, you will simply ‘go’ for it!

We like:

  • The storyline
  • The special effects
  • The sound effects
  • The newer controls and the new elements added

We hate:

  • The game can be extremely difficult at times for the starters
